    Episode 9 poster leak....

    https://movieweb.com/star-wars-9-poster-art-leaked-knights-of-ren/

    Don't mean to hate, but seriously? Every one of these main characters (besides Chewy) is awful. There are 2 new human characters shown, and of course, they are female. Check out the new "Red Fury" Stormtroopers, which look exactly like the other First Order Stormtroopers....but now in RED! There's now an amphibian Jar-Jar apparently, and C3P0 is a bowcaster-toting weapon of destruction now. GTFOH

    The Knights of Ren look interesting, which means they probably be in the movie for less than 5 minutes. Not impressed. Looking at this poster makes the fact that Luke, Han & Leia are dead even more painful. I guess we shall see how Celebration gets the hype train rolling on this garbage in a couple weeks.

    lol c3po has a bowcaster wtf

    #3153 10 months ago

    I think the storm troopers are red because of the lightsaber. You sure that's an official poster? Looks very fan made. Ah hell. Not even sure why I'm asking. I don't think i care anymore.

    #3154 9 months ago

    The more I hear about Episode 9 the less I care. This entire new trilogy has overall sucked. Second order concept is lame, the way Luke was treated sucked, original trilogy characters being killed off left and right. I'm done with Star Wars.

    Quoted from Jason43:

    I think the storm troopers are red because of the lightsaber.

    But the ones right under the hilt are still white?

    Quoted from Jason43:

    I agree. That is too weak to be a real poster, but of course TLJ was too weak to be a real sequel and we got it anyway so who knows.

    Quoted from PanzerFreak:

    Yea, last week I tried to watch a YouTube channel that was designed to explore the unanswered questions we might see revealed in Episode IX and stir up some hype, I watch five of the sixteen minutes and realized it just wasn’t drawing me in so I turned it off and watched something on Avengers.

    If fake where did the images come from?

    Far as posters go I have seen worse, the only really absurd thing is C3PO with a bowcaster.

    I'm guessing because some second rate artist threw this together in about 5 minutes in Photoshop.

    It’s legit I’m sure. The Warrior C3P0 lines up with this rumor floating around...

    “According to Making Star Wars, which is generally pretty reliable when it comes to Star Wars leaks, C-3PO will “reluctantly” have his memory uploaded into RD-D2 at a droid factory. This could allow the Resistance to replace Threepio’s personality with a warrior who knows how to handle a Wookie-sized crossbow. In addition to creating a deadly new ally for the good guys, this personality swap apparently leads to “some funny issues” for R2-D2.”

    Let the belly laughs begin! I swear these ideas are so cringeworthy that these writers must throw a dart blindfolded at a cork board full of bad ideas. I hope this one turns out to be false, but I doubt it. Anyone remember the last 3P0/R2 pun-filled high jinx at a droid factory in Episode 2? How that go?

    #3159 9 months ago

    I’m thinking 3PO goes batshit crazy from the loss of all his human friends... and goes on a killing spree !!!

    Oh my goodness, no way...they couldn’t possibly do that to 3P0...

    Well, as you may know Gremlin Abrams is not really known for highbrow material and writing.

    #3163 9 months ago

    Here’s their line of thinking I billieve.

    BB-8 works because he’s a ball. He even operates in the real world as a puppet so he’s easy to film & can keep up in any situation with the actors. He’s popular. Let’s introduce another ball robot for Episode 9 then. Because two is always better than one! You can see new ball droid on the far right of the new poster, it’s name is Dio or something. It’s like a baby BB-8. How adoreable BB8 finds him annoying, more laughs! Meet Dio, the “porg” of Episode 9.

    They haven’t done shit with R2 or 3P0 in these new movies, which is another reason why they have failed. Ok let’s correct that. But this movie going to be lots of action & characters on the move. So let’s put both R2 & 3P0s personalities into R2, so that they will always be together forever & ever now on, and it will be funny! R2D2 can fly in the prequels, so let’s bring that back. Now R2/3P0 can keep up with the action. What should we do with 3P0s corpse? Preload a warrior into him, More laughs!

    Problems solved!

    If this turns out to be true, I hope R2 explodes before the trilogy ends. End his suffering. The thought of him being stuck in his own personal hell with a split personally C3P0 is horrifying. Plus his master Luke is dead, which is more reason for deep depression. That’s just not right. Poor R2.

    #3164 9 months ago

    I hope all of this is true. I'm all for this movie being a coat hanger abortion of a film.

    #3165 9 months ago

    This is going to be quite the week...

    1) BKSOR gameplay video stream
    2) WONKA reveal at MGC
    3) Star Wars Celebration & the Episode 9 trailer release.

    For those of you who are looking for more info on Celebration & the panels, check them out at the SW YouTube channel. They usually stream it all on the SW website as well.

    https://www.youtube.com/user/starwars/featured

    It's going to be interesting to say the least. The last one was in Spring 2016, which means this is the first public forum for Lucasfilm & the fans since BEFORE the release of TLJ and Solo. I'm guessing there are going to be some passionate disgruntled fans who want to have their voices heard at these live panels. KK showing her face to fans for the first time in years. Will they drag Rian Johnson onstage for a panel? Could be a disaster.

    I wish I was there. Won't all be bad Ep 9 vibes though. Really looking forward to more details on The Mandalorian, Clone Wars, etc etc.

    This seems easily engineered around. If they're worried that Kennedy and Johnson (they should really see if Cynthia Nixon is available to complete the 1960s presidential vibe, eh?) will get grilled by the audience, just put them on panels that don't include a Q&A segment. And then when they get heckled they just chuckle and say "the wonderful thing about Star Wars is the passionate fan base ..." as the offender is escorted from the room.

    #3167 9 months ago

    These Star Wars panels be like:

    Or they will have a friendly audience selected for the role, not the first time it has happened.

    apparently he is still working on a trilogy...
    "Johnson also spoke about his upcoming Star Wars trilogy, saying, "I'm just chugging away on it," and that the most exciting Star Wars projects to him are the ones where people are, "pushing the limits of seeing stuff that we haven't seen before in Star Wars."

    He's just building a record so he gets paid something when they cut him...in addition to quantum merit he'll say he lost other opportunities working on the project and that he needs to be paid for those lost opportunities. He will milk the mouse...in my opinion anyway.

    #3171 9 months ago
    Quoted from rai:

    Nope he was great in TWD especially when he got his buzz cut.

    Shane was a very hateable character. That's what made him so good in TWD.

    That's what I mean, he was alpha male and he and Rick needed to fight it out in the end.

    I see Rey still holds her saber like she wants to have her own arm cut off...

    #3176 9 months ago
    Quoted from Methos:

    What a shit show.

    I suspected the leaked poster was legit. If you are going to Photoshop something, generally speaking you need a set of source images to work with. Search engines for images make tracking down those source images almost trivial now. So unless you are wildly skilled in Photoshop and a good enough artist to fabricate something from scratch.. There you go.

    #3177 9 months ago

    Meanwhile Captain Marvel is closing in on top25 all time worldwide. Not saying that makes it a great movie but it’s a money maker.

    Hopefully Black Widow can get a solo movie before the old guard is replaced.

    Marvell movies are pop-culture like Coke and Pepsi used to be. Total cash cows. It's amazing actually... they just have a broad enough appeal to them and we've arrived at a point in time with cinematic technology that just can produce this stuff fairly easily(relative to say 25-30 years ago).

    Disney shares up 12% today.

    While most can agree that KK and RJ have destroyed SW for many fans. Overall SW purchase by Disney was not all bad. I can take a few Solo or TFA duds but some other movies and maybe tv series may be good.

    Also tell me who is not going to watch episode 9. You may watch it because you love it or hate it but it’s going to be watched by everyone here on this thread. Imo.

    I still haven't watched Solo even though Netflix prompts me to do so every time I log in. I'll read the synopsis for this one but no, I probably won't bother seeing it unless it's far better than I can imagine it being.

    Solo is not a good movie. But it’s at last worth fast forwarding on Netflix to catch Donald Glover’s performance as Lando, which was enjoyable.

    Solo is not good but some day it’d make a good Mystery Science Theatre 3000 episode.

    #3185 9 months ago

    Solo was "ok"

    It is enjoyable.

    Watched it twice.

    It's better than the babies say it is.....

    There's a BW movie in the works for 2020 or 2021, I can't remember which.

    No shit, makes "Attack of the Clones" look good.

    I won't watch it in the theater but will probably watch it later in a way that doesn't give Disney money; just like I did for Solo (which was a decently enjoyable film). I am all in on this boycott and still pissed about TLJ almost a year and a half later. This is after I was personally responsible for buying 18 tickets to TFA (multiple viewings for me and others) and 7 for TLJ (one viewing was too much). That isn't much but if enough fans like myself do like they did for Solo, they should feel it for Episode 9 too.

    Not a dime will I put in Disney's pocket, for a number of reasons.

    #3189 9 months ago

    I'll likely be going opening day. I enjoyed The Force Awakens more then any of the prequel trilogy and I'm excited to see what J.J. Abrams will do with Episode IX. I'll likely avoid this thread in the future, since it seems it's becoming a Episode IX spoiler thread. Perhaps change the title to reflect.

    #3190 9 months ago
    Quoted from fosaisu:

    Silly name! I really hope they’ve got a guy named “Will” in it ...

    Some fan theory is Lucas originally wanted midichlorians to be called "The Whills" for microscopic critters that feed off the Force and this title might be a nod towards 'ol George.

    #3191 9 months ago
    Quoted from rai:

    That's due to the Disney+ streaming service announcement. Price is shockingly low - $7/month, and includes everything. Investors are eating that up.

    Not sure what I can do to the topic title as it beings with *SPOILERS* and I have used up all the characters allowed already hah.

    If anyone is dropping spoilers of 9 please note it at the beginning of your post.

    Thanks!
